Genial property owner/manager and sometime speculator. 40 years in theatre and film. I paint, write and do a lot of gardening. I regard animals as excellent company as well as flowers. Read the whole of Proust and miss it enough to read it again...perhaps. Delighted by science, defeated by math. For many years I was a theatre and book critic for a weekly paper in Manhattan as well as various journals. More happily married than anyone I've ever met.
